Greater Bay Little League


What baseball division's do we offer?

ages below are suggestions--many players "move up" early and play in upper divisions at younger ages**

  • Coach Pitch (4-6 year olds) - Each batter gets four pitches from a coach on their team.  Bases are run station to station.  Kids learn basic baseball rules and how to enjoy the game.
  • Machine Pitch (6-8 year olds) - Players hit from a pitching machine run by a coach.  Outs are made, runs are scored.  Kids refine their ability to track pitches, catch, and throw.  They improve their baseball knowledge so they are ready to move to the minors.
  • Minors (8-10 year olds) - Kids pitch to each other from the mound.  Strikeouts and walks occur.  Stealing bases is introduced.  All Little League rules are implemented and players are improving to make the jump to Majors.
  • Majors (10-12 year olds) - All Little League rules are implemented without restrictions.  Players are talented and capable, work on refining skills previously learned to become better overall baseball players.

Do I have to volunteer?

Volunteering at Greater Bay is not a requirement, but the league does run on the power of volunteers. We are always in need of parents, families, and friends to help with field cleanup, maintenance, coaching, etc!

How many games will be played?

Although weather plays a factor,  Greater Bay makes every effort to follow these guidelines:
Coach Pitch – 10 games, each game lasts 3 innings (60 min. time limit)
Machine Pitch – 12 games, each game lasts 4 innings (1 hr. 45 min. time limit)

What does my child need to bring to practice and games?

Greater Bay will provide hats and jerseys to all players, as well as team equipment (catcher’s gear, bats, baseballs). Players are responsible for bringing their own glove and baseball pants. Additionally, players can choose to bring their own USA Standard Bat & catcher’s gear if desired.
